FTTC138 - Autumn colours

I'm very happy to fill in for this week's Timeless Tuesday again, and this week's challenge (FTTC138) is this divine Autumn inspiration:



It makes me all nostalgic about Poland. Autumn is one of the things that I miss most, especially now - the crisp, fresh air, leaves rustling under my feet and those magnificent colours... sigh!
We're heading towards Summer, here in Oz. I don't think I'll ever adjust...!

I made my sample card, with the special set designed exclusively for Flourishes FLIP members - With Gratitude. You can't buy it but you can get if for free, if you're a FLIP member - you can become one by making a purchase of $100 or over in the Flourishes store.
You can read more about FLIP incentive program here.

Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft; paper: Crate Paper (assorted collections); stamps: Flourishes (With Gratitude); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa); Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); Copics; paper doily; sewing machine; Nestabilities Circles; buttons: Basic Grey; border punch: EK Success; butterfly punches: Martha Stewart/Cristina Re; brad: Basic Grey; string: AnnaBelle Stamps

The inspiration photo of TSTR82 is very similar, so I decided to link my card there as well. The sketch comes from SSSC137:
